Leave No Trace Master Educator Course – Touch of Nature Environmental Center

The Master Educator course is an extensive experience designed to immerse participants in Leave No Trace skills and ethics through hands-on practice and teaching. The course provides participants with a comprehensive overview of Leave No Trace techniques through practical application in a backcountry setting. Students who successfully graduate from this course will receive a certificate and will be qualified to offer and teach two-day Leave No Trace Trainer courses as well as shorter Awareness Workshops.

During five days of training participants will be backpacking approximately 10 miles through various locations across Southern Illinois while learning and teaching the principles of Leave No Trace. Locations such as Touch of Nature Environmental Center, Little Grassy Lake, Panther’s Den Wilderness, Giant City State Park, Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge and the Shawnee National Forest provide ideal settings for exploring and discussing outdoor ethics, frontcountry issues, and backcountry Leave No Trace principles.
